a question about islam.why are people from the bible who weren't prophets are called prophets in islam?

both king David and king Solomon are called great prophets in Islam

a prophet is a person that receives revelations from god, and both of them clearly didn't, they where great sinner in the eyes of God ans where punished for that. when the people who where the prophets of the time like Samuel, Eli, Nathan, who allegedly lived in the time those king allegedly existed ,are not even mentioned in the Quran.(no archaeological evidence was ever found to supposed kings David and Solomon ever existed) in fact most of the biblical prophets mentioned in the quran are infect famous characters from the bible who weren't prophets, and most prophets in the old testament are not even mentioned in the quran. it's like God forgot what he wrote and who he talked with in the old book when he wrote the new one...

Update:

handsome B wonderful:

thats obvious

all religions are man made

but this one was poorly made

Update 2:

i think that sending some pure solider to war just do you could sleep with his wife is a big sin, thats what king David did

a prophet wouldn't do such a thing

in fact gods prophets told him it was a sin and that god would punish him if he would do that before he did it

but his lust took over

such a man can't be gods prophet

    First of all friend, Bible is corrupted; the original bible does not exist anymore, It's written by men.

    David and solomon are prophets in Islam and they did receive knowledge from God: here are proves from the Holy Qur'an:

    Prevalence over Wind:

    The Prophet Sulaiman (peace be upon him) inherited many virtues from his illustrious father. He was endowed with special gifts. Wind was made subservient to him and he could easily perform long journey in the twinkling of an eye. The Holy Qur'an affirms:

    "And (We made) the wind subservient to Sulaiman whereof the morning course was a month's journey and the course a month's journey." (54:12)

    "So We subjected the wind to his power, setting fair by his command withersoever he intended" (38:36)

    "And unto Sulaiman We subdued the wind in its raging. It flows by his order towards the land which We had blessed And of every thing We are aware." (21:81)

    Jinns are Subdued to Him:

    He was also given the power over Jinns and Devils. He utilized them in his service. They carried out his orders ungrudgingly and were punished when they became refractory The Holy Qur'an affirms:

    034.012 And to Solomon (We made) the Wind (obedient): Its early morning (stride)

    was a month's (journey), and its evening (stride) was a month's (journey); and We

    made a Font of molten brass to flow for him; and there were Jinns that worked in

    front of him, by the leave of his Lord, and if any of them turned aside from our

    command, We made him taste of the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.

    034.013 They worked for him as he desired, (making) arches, images, basons as large

    as reservoirs, and (cooking) cauldrons fixed (in their places): "Work ye, sons of

    David, with thanks! but few of My servants are grateful!"

    In another Verse the Holy Qur'an says: "And before Sulaiman were marshalled his hosts--of Jinns, and men and birds and they were all in order and ranks." (21: 17)

    The Prophet Dawud Perceives the Speech of the Birds:

    The Prophet Sulaiman peace be upon him) was gifted with the knowledge of understanding the speech of birds, animals and insects. He was also capable to talk to them. The Holy Qur'an testifies to it in the following Verses:

    "He (Sulaiman) said: O' People! We have been taught the language of the birds and have been given (abundance) of all things; this is indeed grace manifest (from Allah)."

    in accordance to islam they have on no account been sinners yet they have been guiding human beings to follow god that makes them prophets, r there any archaeological evidence that teach existence of prophets contained in the bible, additionally there have been prophets existed that weren't pronounced in qur'an the purpose of stating prophets is performed by skill of stating a number of them the quran isn't a historic e book to tell memories of Prophets ,why do u think that what's attainable contained in the bible is the actuality u mentioned u had no appreciate for all faith the two ? edit the story u purely mentioned approximately prophet david isn't real and we don't think in that we purely have self belief in what's offered in qur'an what u mentioned is contained in the bible we don't think in it.
